We're Ba-a-ack!

When it comes to travel, boring can be very good! Who needs adventures at a time like that? No lost luggage, no missed planes, no spilt coffee, just a normal flight that goes to plan.

We had two flights booked out of Kuala Lumpur on Monday 12th. One was back to Kuala Terengganu - the one we took in the end - and the other was booked to Langkawi where we were to meet up with our colleagues from IPG who were going there by bus at that time. But the bus trip was postponed - maybe because of the weather forecast (?), so we ended up coming back to Kuala Terengganu as per our original plan.

A few more days of holiday

But we are not back at work yet. So we went down to the Noor Arfa arts and crafts place just south of Kuala Terengganu - I wanted to buy some nice batik material.

Back in the day (in the '70s) when I was at teachers' college, I did Batik printing as an option, so it was fascinating to see this Batik demonstration at Noor Arfa. We never painted our fabrics, only added wax and then dyed them. This young lady was doing a remarkable job despite the monsoon wind that was sneaking past her defenses and trying to rip the material away.

And then of course the little man figured he needed to show us the other crafts on display. This gentleman is making some pretty little glass things - doesn't seem very Malaysian, though.


We felt it was time to upgrade our lifestyle a little, with a bigger TV.

The men came and set it all up for us ... but we are still waiting for our Astro package to be activated so we can have some worthwhile stuff to watch on it.
